I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism around 2 months ago. Have a look at my previous report http://i.imgur.com/9QTQrDt. Jpg.My doctor prescribed me thyroxine Sodium 75 mcg tablets and advised me to get another fT4/tsh test done after 1 months of taking this tablet. But due to some problems I didn't go for the test and now after two months I noticed a little increment in the swelling of my thyroid gland. So I want your advice regarding test and medicine dose adjustment or some medicine to be added or remove from previous one. So please tell me with details Should I go for a free T4/TSH test? Any medicine to be added or remove from this? Your advice.

Mr. lybrate-user, I can not access your earlier report in this communication. It is possible to see only when report is uploaded in a private conversation. It is always advised to get a repeat TSH test done after 6 to 8 weeks of starting treatment, to check if the dose give is adequate or needs any alteration. On treatment TSh should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L, then only all he symptoms are well controlled. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if you are not diabetic, then there may be a possibility urinary tract infection, so get a routine urine examination done and see if there is any infection. Infection increases frequency of urine. Also please check your blood sugar once again to rule out diabetes.

Hello, madam, if you are interested in becoming pregnant and having hypothyroidism then it absolutely essential to control that condition effectively. Tsh levels should be below 2 mill units if you want to get conception and through out pregnancy tsh should remain closer to 2 milli nits / ml. If this is not done, conception may not occue, or fetal neurocognitive development will be affected and chances of premature birth and low birth weight as well as miscarriage may occur.
